Asian Avocado Smoothie

When we first got to Taiwan, I was wondering how I'd be able to concoct really fabulous dishes with unfamiliar ingredients and lack of international foods which I've so come to take for granted, living in big Canadian cities full of immigrants and their specialty food shops. Here Mexican, Italian, Middle-Eastern and even Indian foods are hard-to-find expensive imports.

Fear not, it seems we have found our groove. Rich made a fantastic Thai-inspired curry coconut soup, even mixing up his own version of a fish sauce.

I blended up a yummy nourishing thick smoothie, almost like a creamy cold soup. But don't wait until the next time you have lychee yogurt on your hands... Just experiment! That's what blenders were made for! :D I was recently told about a banana-Bailey's-ice cream shake!... Yummm... :-P

Asian Avocado Smoothie
- this made almost a full blender -

* 2 bananas
* 1/2 huge avocado (here they are huge and watery in texture)
* ~ 2 cups non-GMO sweetened soy milk (variable amount)
* 3T lychee yogurt
* vanilla tea (for flavor and to dilute it to desired consistency)
* a few shakes of cinnamon
